Social Media Rejects Steve Harvey’s Apology To Mo’Nique / Critics Call Him A “Coon”

Published: Tuesday 19th Feb 2019 by David

Steve Harvey has been labelled a sell-out and a “lowly coon” by critics who detest his suggestion that black entertainers should prioritise money over integrity when handling business.

This, a suggestion he offered the beloved actress Mo’Nique when she made her way to his successful talk show to discuss the inequality she faces as an Oscar-winning black woman in Hollywood.

Watch their conversation here.

Full story below…

The family man issued this statement today:

I’ve got to slow down when I’m talking. I can’t get into heated discussions, and I’ve got to just guard my words more carefully.

I take full responsibility for it, it came out my mouth, so I can’t say that I didn’t say it. But to people that really know me, I have lived my whole life as a man of integrity. So when I was referring to ‘integrity’ in that interview, I was talking about the method in which things were being done, and that is all it was. I never questioned anybody’s principles or anybody’s causes. I was merely questioning, for the 50-minute interview, the method that she chose going about doing it — and I regret that looking back at it now, because that was a bad choice of words.I have lived my whole life as a man of integrity, and I will stand on that, but I was really just talking about the method that they went about doing what they did, and that was it.

Alas, many members of the African-American community aren’t convinced.


Mo’Nique is yet to respond.

Your thoughts?

    “Steve Harvey didn’t actually mean integrity when he said integrity, because he has integrity”. Lmao, basically. ?

    I understood what Steve meant. He isn’t the most articulate so if cane off wrong. But I still stand behind him and agree with everything he said. Monique simply need to pick her battles and move smarter. PeriodT.

      At this point, you just want to be disagreeable. Just because everyone is saying something doesn’t make it true. I get that.

      But you ALWAYS go out of your way to follow something illogical. You do NOT know what Steve Harvey meant because he told her to suck it up and play THEIR game.

      When we should BAND TOGETHER and make our own game, so we don’t have to cow-tow to their BS. But you think Rihanna can sing, so common sense isn’t your forte.

      He had no right to wag his finger in a black woman’s face in front of all those racist whites. This will continue black women getting openly disrespected by not only the Steves but others too. How sad.. the man got issues

    Lawd Im black but black folks need to seek Jesus lol. How you gonna get mad because people don’t want to sacrifice their lives and work for you? smh. It’s cool to stand up for yourself but some folks on twitter taking it too far. Black folks the main ones calling for boycotts and to quit your job and then when your broke they won’t help you. You will be la led a washed up flop. Then be the same ones back shopping at the white owned businesses, banking with whites, watching white owned tv shows and networks. The list goes on. The end of the world is coming soon and when it does it’s going to be a mess.

    Steve Harvey had the nerve to call Cornel West an “Uncle Tom” back in 2011 which couldn’t be further from the truth.
